People were laughing at me cause of course if you're black apparently you have to root for the black buy, but I was pulling for Joe to whoop this dude and boy did he deliver. That's still the best Calzaghe moment I remember, Joe made me so proud that night.
Scotty Pemberton was a good, very tough fighter in his day, a bit chinny, but was well past his peak by the time he fought Lacy. It was a very poor event to judge by. He must have been nearly 40 by then. His two fights with Omar Sheika finished him, tough, tough fights. I saw them both.

Pemberton was always going to KO or be KO'd . He was just that sort of fighter, got into the trenches right away.

He was a bit slow and awkward but brave.
